NORIS A. LUSCHE FELLOWSHIP
The Noris A. Lusche Fellowship was established in 1992 to pay tribute to the leadership and service of Past International President, Rocky Mountain District Kiwanis Governor and member, Noris Lusche. Kiwanians or others may be distinguished Lusche Fellows or honor other deserving individuals with a contribution of $1,000. This contribution may be an outright gift or paid over three years. There are currently over 700 members in the Lusche Fellowship.
